The Gallery Cafe with its Famous Staircase, at Royal Highland Hotel
Casual dining in the Gallery presents a lovely foil and gentle alternative to ASH.
To the right of the spacious lobby and grand staircase is the Gallery café. Ideal for those mainly wanting a lighter bite or snack, although an extensive menu does cater for more substantial meals too as a relaxing alternative in a completely different and more classical ambience to that of the more contemporary, chic Ash Restaurant.
Again preserving all the features of, and very reminiscent of the grandeur and style of yesteryear, whilst tastefully preserved with contemporary comforts, the Gallery Café provides a great meeting point for discerning locals and residents alike – who prefer to relax in its stylish surroundings, linger a while and chat or read a book - and enjoy a superb daily offering of beverages (including speciality teas and coffees), home baking and pastries, soft and alcoholic drinks table served – and a delicious ever changing extensive daily light bite menu - with something more substantial always available to ease the hunger pangs.
Open daily early till late, this is a very spacious area which also serves as a very pleasant, quiet pre and post dinner drinks, aperitifs and liqueurs alternative to the more vibrant Ash Bar adjoining Ash Restaurant. The restaurant is easily accessible by level access from the Gallery Café.
A firm favourite with locals and visitors alike, the Gallery Cafe is the ‘wide awake’ place to be! Enjoy a contemporary, fresh, yet classically styled dining and wining with Georgian influences, boasting a varied menu, available all day, featuring many dishes and delicious light bites and pastries inspired by traditional Scottish cuisine.
And nothing epitomizes the hotel’s majestic style and great historic past, than the Grand Staircase which faces you the minute you enter our Gallery Cafe and hottel reception area.
The majestic staircase, which inspired the designers of the Titanic (the inspiration for the stairwell in the ballroom on the Titanic), forms the whole focal point of the building – and provdies a most impressive lead up to the hotel’s to the 84 refurbished bedrooms too.
